Sam has been coming in to school late sometimes. She always asks me if I have any spare money for lunch, which is a bit annoying. She doesn’t hang out with us at lunchtime though. Some of the other girls make fun of her. Sam heard someone laughing about a story they had heard about a house catching fire and she ran out crying and hid in the toilets. She won’t tell me why she was upset.
